    Climate change is a hot topic in modern society, as global warming is detected for last 100 years. Intergovernment Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) believed that human activities played an important role in contribution to global warming. Now people seem afraid very much on the “global warming”, as any natural disasters happen, no matter the disaster is flooding or drought, heat wave or cool snowing disasters, just attribute them as a result of global warming. So did IPCC 4th assess-ment report. Is global climate really warming? Is global climate really so severely warming? Does glob-al warming bring to human just disadvantages without any benefits? Flooding and drought are the two aspects of a pair of antinomy, how both can be caused by the same factor of “ global warming”? Geological records show that climatic variation is normal on the earth history. Many glacial and inter-glacial periods, respectively corresponding for global cooling and warming, cycle long time before human appearance. The main driving factor of global change is the amount of the Earth receiving radi -ation from Sun. Stable climate is temporarily and short terms, while various climate is long terms and everlasting. This paper synthesizes and compares various consequences of global warming and cooling, we think that global warming brings more benefits than disadvantages to human beings.
